Di Canio eyes more arrivals

Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio admits he is still looking to add to his squad before the start of the new season.

Di Canio has been one of the busiest managers in the Premier League this summer, bringing in nine new faces and he has no plans to stop yet.

The Italian believes he needs to bring in a few more players if the side are to improve on last season's disappointing campaign.

Asked if he planned to make any more forays in the transfer market, Di Canio told reporters in Hong Kong ahead of next week's Barclays Asia Trophy.

"Of course," said Di Canio. "Obviously we know the board knows that we need something more. But I don't know if it's possible at the moment.

"We have already made some good signings and the club has made some sacrifices in some ways, they have spent some money.

"So I am happy, but obviously it would be better to bring in one or two other players, but we will see."
